Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) fires back at a reporter's question about recent comments from FEMA Administrator Deanne Criswell. Forbes breaking news official youtube channel shared this viral video, which you can watch below:

 


DeSantis while addressing the media briefing said:

Whoa, whoa, give me a break. That is nonsense. Stop politicizing. Okay, stop it.
We declared a state of emergency when this thing wasn't even formed. We've had people in here. You've had counties doing They've done a lot of hard work, and honestly, You're attacking these other people who've worked very hard, and so that's just totally false. I don't think we've ever, certainly since I've been Governor, declared a state of emergency this early. We made sure that we were very inclusive with it.

We said that there was a lot of uncertainty and then we've worked to make sure the preparations that have been done and all the stuff you talk to the people at the counties when they need something gets there very quickly because of what Kevin and his team have done.

I think that's why you have evacuations that have been ordered in the low-lying areas, and again, that's a county decision, but it's a decision we've supported. We've worked with them on this because you do have a potentially historic storm surge now.

We were here 24 hours ago. You were looking at maybe 10 to 12 feet in the Tampa Bay area. Now that has shifted to where that type of surge may be further down the coast in Southwest Florida.
You still have Tampa facing a potentially significant storm surge, which is potentially life-threatening at that level.

You also have the situation where you could have almost like hurricane Harvey was in Houston, where it gets on show and is just slowly moving and meandering, dumping water and water everywhere, and that's going to pile up and that's going to cause a lot of problems with flooding, and so you know, we've been talking about that the whole time and people understand that. That's why the evacuations have not just been of the Barrier Islands but areas that are susceptible to that type of flooding.

And I think if you look at Charlotte, Charlotte County, and some of those areas, you have a potential for major inundation there, and it's not just the people that live on the coast, so I think that message has been delivered by the local emergency managers. I think they've done a good job.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) fired at Elon Musk after she claimed her Twitter notifications were not working.  In an Instagram story posted on Wednesday, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed that her Twitter notifications were no longer working after she criticized Elon Musk. The criticism was over Musk's plan to charge users $8 a month to verify their accounts. Musk posted a tweet yesterday with a photo of a sweatshirt sold on the New York Democrats' website for 58 dollars. AOC fired back, saying that her workers are in a union and make a living wage, and proceeds go to, quote, "community investments" like tutoring kids. Ocasio-Cortez delighted in the fact that Musk lashed out at her, saying, quote, "We have a billionaire." That's the American dream right there. In her released video, AOC said: I was at a community event in the Bronx

WATCH: Biden Gaffes Again, While Speaking In Florida Rally

  Photo credit: Gage Skidmore/CC BY-SA 2.0,  via Flickr President Biden gaffes about the "war in Iraq" causing inflation while speaking in Florida, then blames his reference to Iraq on his son Beau dying there; Beau Biden died in Walter Reed years after his service in Iraq. President Joe Biden misspoke again at a rally in South Florida on Tuesday. During his remarks, President Joe Biden accidentally said that inflation was caused by quoting the war in Iraq. The president then corrected himself and said it was Ukraine, but I didn't study was quote thinking of Iraq because that's where my son died. Biden's son Beau Biden served in Iraq from 2008 to 2009.  Biden has previously claimed that Beau died in Iraq despite the fact that he died at Walter Reed many years following his service. Biden has said he believes exposures to burn pitoxins may have contributed to the cancer that claimed beau's life. He said: “They talk about inflation… inflation is a worldwide

Trump Mocks DeSantis During Pennsylvania Rally: 'Ron DeSanctimonious'

Photo "Donald Trump" by  Dan Scavino Former US President Donald Trump mocked Ron DeSantis as "Ron DeSanctimonious" at a Latrobe rally yesterday in Pennsylvania. Watch out for his complete reaction below. Trump, while addressing his rally, said these lines: Today I have the highest poll numbers I've ever had, perhaps partly because the Democrats are so severely running our country and people want our tremendous success of no inflation, energy independence, and military victory (remember, I defeated ISIS one hundred percent). Remember Al-Baghdadi and so many other things, including crime? We had it weighed down. But we have the best poll numbers; where are they putting them up on the screen? I think you should put them up and look at them. We are winning big, big, big in the Republican Party for the nomination like nobody's ever seen before. Let's say there is Trump at 71, Ron DeSanctimonious at 10 percent, and Mike Pence at seven. Targeting forme

DeSantis Issues Warning To Doctors Performing Gender Affirming Surgery On Minors

  Photo credit: Gage Skidmore/CC BY-SA 2.0,  via Flickr At a campaign event yesterday, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) slammed doctors who perform gender confirmation surgeries on minors. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis continued his campaign for re-election on Wednesday, focusing on cultural and war issues. DeSantis has doubled down on his controversial stance on gender-affirming care for minors; he decried the teaching of so-called gender theory in public schools. A topic that has earned him accusations of transphobia and bigotry by many LGBTQ Americans and their allies DeSantis has celebrated his state's commitment to take doctors' medical licenses if they performed gender-firming surgeries on minors as well. The issue has become a hot topic among Republican politicians, who believe it can help them win votes among parents wary of social change. This sentence is currently leading his Democratic challenger Charlie Crist by double digits. DeSantis mentioned in his speech that:
